Archer Heights is a predominantly Hispanic neighborhood since the 90s. Archer Heights was named after William Archer a developer in the 1800s. It was inhabited by Italians, Lithuanians and Czechs until the 90's. The community has changed and is a low social economic neighborhood with poverty and crime that has increased over the past 2 years.
As someone who has been in the area since 2004, I can say Archer Heights is a place where people keep to themselves. The majority of people seem to be raising kids and while the neighborhood is generally calm, a small amount of violence and gang activity has been present, and seems to increase slowly as the years go by. Jobs in general are scarce within the neighborhood, and many, me included, have to commute to work in other places around Chicago. The neighborhood is conveniently close to the I-55 highway and to plenty of stores around the area, which makes things easier. The neighborhood is densely packed with mostly Latino people, and while polite, lead private, secluded lives.
